Rising star, James Gallagher, out of Bellator 196. Hopes for Bellator 200.
Bellator’s brightest rising star, James Gallagher, has been forced out of his Bellator 196 main event fight. A fractured hand has removed him from the April 6 card, but he seems intent on making it back in May, for Bellator 200.
The Strabanimal issued a statement via his Instagram.
“Want to say sorry to everyone, who was tuning in to watch me fight, for this setback. I was at 100% healthy and ready to strangle everyone in this division once again, but I fractured my hand in an unlucky training accident. I stayed in the fight and would have done it with one hand easy, but unfortunately, I couldn’t get medically cleared and had to step out. Thanks to all of you for the ongoing support and rest assured to the Jimmy Show will be back soon enough to clear out all of these bums.
I’m going to be ready for Bellator 200 in London, in May. Who wants to see me on it?”
I’ll be the first to admit that I do. this kid has been nothing short of spectacular in his short 7-0 career. Guys like Gallagher and Aaron Pico are what Bellator’s up-and-comers are all about.
